Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 1 Is An Awesome April Fools Treat For Animation Fans

Rick and Morty Season 3

The April First premiere of Rick and Morty Season 3 was a gift to animation fans everywhere. It gave use the conclusion of the Season 2 arc while setting things up for the future.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere April First Event

Tuning into Adult Swim last Saturday Night to watch Samurai Jack or Dragon Ball Super, you would discover that these shows did not air. Instead, what you found instead was the sneak peak of the new Rick and Morty Season 3.

As an April Fools, it was one of the best I have seen, despite the hate it got from everyone who only wanted to watch Toonami that night. Still, what we got was a perfect replacement.

To be honest, I do not watch enough Rick and Morty. I do not hate the series. I just never had the time to watch it. However, I enjoyed every time I did manage to catch the series.

One of those times was the April First sneak peak of Rick and Morty Season 3. While the event made a lot of Samurai Jack and Dragon Ball fans mad, the rest of the world is celebrating the majesty of Rick and Morty Season 3.

How to End a Galactic Government

Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 1 begins where Season 2 left off. The Galactic Federation is in control of Earth, and Rick is in jail. As everyone tries to make sense of where they are, Summer proposes to get Rick out of jail at the dismay of Morty and her family.

While in detention, the government interrogates Rick about his portal device through a virtual world of his dreams. After a small jab at McDonald’s and their Mulan McNugget sauce from 1998, Rick tricks the agent to gain control of the virtual world and frees himself.

Rick eventually catches up with Summer and Morty before heading over to the government’s headquarters. In the madness, he ends the government by devaluing its currency.

The episode ends with a recap and a post credits scene of the return of Bird Person.

Rick and Morty and Real Life

All animation fans have to watch Rick and Morty at some point in their life. It is a serialized comedy with hilarious moments that do not reset in the next episode.

If you need to catch up, you can find the series on several streaming services before Season 3 officially gets under way later this year.

For now, I am hungry for McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. If you need some Mulan sauce as well, say so in the comments below. You can also discuss the first episode of Rick and Morty Season 3 there  as well.

The Toon Radio stream is down as of this post, but I will seek the Rick and Morty soundtrack if they ever release it.

  • I’ve never seen this show, but maybe I should watch it sometime. I used to watch Adult Swim all the time, but now I only have Netflix, haha.
